Notwithstanding the foregoing, a receiving party may disclose Confidential Information of a disclosing party pursuant to any statute, regulation, order, subpoena or document discovery request, and provided that prior written notice of such disclosure is furnished to the disclosing party as soon as practicable in order to afford the disclosing party an opportunity to seek, at its own expense, a protective order (it being agreed that if the disclosing party is unable to obtain or does not seek a protective order and the receiving party is legally compelled to disclose such information, disclosure of such information may be made without liability).

Unless as otherwise stated in the Agreements, should any provision of the Agreements be held invalid or unenforceable for any reason or to any extent, such invalidity or enforceability shall not in any manner affect or render invalid or unenforceable the remaining provisions of the Agreements, and the application of that provision shall be enforced to the extent permitted by law.
Pefoma may assign the Pefoma Terms or any part of them, and Pefoma may delegate any of its obligations under the Pefoma Terms. You may not assign the Pefoma Terms or any part of them, nor transfer or sub-license your rights under the Pefoma Terms, to any third party.

Each party irrevocably agrees that the courts of England and Wales shall have exclusive jurisdiction to settle any dispute or claim (including non-contractual disputes or claims) arising out of or in connection with this agreement or its subject matter or formation.
